In the almost 30 years since the violent anti-Sikh attacks of 1984, dominant memories of the events have been colored by the Indian state, Indian mass media, and counter-state voices of militant Sikhs. But how can we examine narratives that fall outside these ways of remembrance?

Using text and images from a selection of Sikh websites this webinar will examine present-day virtual or online memory work on 1984 as significantly different from dominant memories put out by both the Indian state and violent, militant discourse. Calling current cyber-commemoration “crevices in dominant memories,” we will ask: What are some other ways to remember 1984 and how do they come across in virtual spaces?
